Buni reacts as boat mishaps kill many in Yobe
Two boats loaded with passengers going to Babbangida weekly market capsized on Saturday, with only two bodies recovered so far.
Gov. Buni, who made his feelings known in a statement through his spokesperson, Mamman Mohammed, on Saturday also directed an intensive search mission with the hope to rescue the remaining victims or their bodies.
The governor described the accident as sad, unfortunate, and devastating, and prayed for the safe rescue of the victims while advising travellers on the roads, streams, and rivers as well as, residents along water banks to always be cautious.
Buni prayed Allah (SWT) to protect the people, their properties, livestock, and farmlands.
It was gathered that Yobe State Government, in collaboration with security agencies and relevant stakeholders, is working to provide improvised alternative safe routes for the affected communities to have safe travel and access to adjoining villages; communities trapped will be provided with essential life-saving support accordingly.
